2015 Volkswagen Golfs Bound For the U.S. will Be Made In Mexico


The U.S.-bound, seventh-generation Volkswagen Golf will be made in Mexico. The German automaker has announced that production of the new model will commence at its Puebla, Mexico, plant in early 2014. VW says that the decision to build the Golf in Mexico safeguards from currency fluctuation, protecting the brand in the fight between the weakening Euro and strong U.S. Golf sales. The Golf will join the Jetta, the Jetta SportWagen, and the Beetle, all of which currently are produced in Mexico.

European markets will continue to get their Golfs from local plants—Puebla-built Golf models are reserved for just the American markets. But the production site should not imply that quality and equipment are inferior to European-built models. Puebla-built Jettas, Beetles, and SportWagens are exported to markets all around the globe, including Germany.

Although the Golf MkVII already is available in Europe, the car won’t be sold in the U.S. some time in the first half of 2014, according to VW of America. Despite the delayed launch, the Golf VII is likely to be worth the wait over the sixth-generation hatchback currently on offer. The 2015 Golf will be significantly lighter and more agile than the MkVI, and it will ditch the five-cylinder engine in favor of a turbocharged four.
